Mary Jo wasn't a right-wing talking point or a negative campaign slogan. She was a dedicated civil rights activist and political talent with a bright future -- granted, whenever someone dies young, people sermonize about how he had a "bright future" ahead of him -- but she actually did. She wasn't afraid to defy convention (28 and unmarried, oh the horror!) or create her own career path based on her talents. She lived in Georgetown (where I grew up) and loved the Red Sox (we'll forgive her for that). Then she got in a car driven by a 36-year-old senator with an alcohol problem and a cauldron full of demons, and wound up a controversial footnote in a dynasty.
We don't know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she'd have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don't know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.
Still, ignorance doesn't preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn't automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted's death, and what she'd have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.
Who knows -- maybe she'd feel it was worth it.
The Footnote Speaks: What Would Mary Jo Kopechne Have Thought of Ted's Career? - Melissa Lafsky @ Huffington Post
This is a perfect example of how elitist liberals think of us ordinary people.
I hope the staff members of liberal democRAT senators and representatives do take note: You are expendable for the greater goal of advancing the ideology and the career of the politicians you serve or volunteer for. Don't worry it will be all worth it and you will be recognized as a "footnote" in these liberal democRAT politicians' life stories.
Senior citizens should be well aware that it will be for the good of the socialist government that they will choose early retirement from life as part of the socialist health care scheme. They will be celebrated as "footnotes" for the great socialist revolution. It will be well worth it!
Unborn babies that will be aborted to prevent imagined population crises will also be footnotes in their mothers' memory. They will be told that aborting their babies is well worth it to help save the planet.
Millions of people who were perished during the past communist experiments around the world are also "footnotes" for the careers of delusional elitists like marx, engels, lenin and many others. I am sure today's elitist radical leftists in America think of their deaths as well worth it since they still want to try the same old failed delusional ideas that brought misery, destruction and death to millions of people.
The radical leftists do not value human lives.
They just don't.
